P-E firms KKR, TPG, and Bain have shown interest in buying BMC Software (BMC +0.9%), sources tell Bloomberg. On the flip side, IT giants such as Oracle, Cisco, Dell, and EMC are deemed "unlikely to bid" due to a lack of interest in BMC's mainframe software/services business, and concerns about the cost of breaking the company up. BMC, under pressure from activist investor Elliott Associates to sell, has hired BofA/Merrill to help facilitate a deal.
